We had a happy Thanksgiving on Thursday, with all of the kiddies and friends. Captain Mom's friend Quarters came by to visit and Captain Fabuloso's old roommate White Lightning also stopped by. We were glad to have so many people over to enjoy the holiday.

The Boy went for one of the turkey legs. The part below the leg is actually his goatee, and not gravy dripping off. However, I'm sure that by the end, there was about as much gravy in the goatee as there was on the leg.

Captain Mom put our table to good use and did a nice job setting things up for everyone.

We also had appetizers in the living room to munch on while we waited for dinner to cook and watched movies. It was a successful Thanksgiving indeed.

Christmas Ideas

Here we have the Bean with a few of his favorite toys. First, is Senor's cell phone. The first time Bean got legitimately mad when something was taken away from him was when I took the cell phone out of his hands. He seems to like the lights.

Here is our future text-message champion hard at work honing his skills. The concentration is remarkable.
Bean also has an inordinate fondness for empty water bottles. He can play with them for extended periods of time, but you have to put it back in his hands when he (frequently) drops it.

Bean also loves to play with his friends. He seems to be a popular fellow around the house these days.


Bean is not particularly fond of solids or bottles. He certainly won't take formula. We are trying to get him used to eating rice mix, but he makes faces everytime we try. Here are a few of the ones we see regularly.

He also likes to hold it in his mouth as long as he can, and will swallow at the last possible moment. At this rate, he will be on solids for his 8th birthday party.

Halloween Party!

We also had our neighborhood Halloween party on the side lawn on Monday. We all had a good time and got the bean dressed up in his pumpkin suit.

Mom got dressed up in her Aunt's old maternity clothes. That's right, not a costume - her Aunt's old maternity clothes. She apparently held onto them in case someone else wanted them. I think we can rule out that possibility.

It was cold out, so we had to get the Bean all tucked in to try to keep him warm. We all had a nice time.


We had some Halloween activities last weekend. Namely, pumpkin carving with Senor and Cicada. The Boy was feeling sick and couldn't make it. This is Cicada and her baby pumpkin.

This is the 'spooky' version of Alma's pumpkin.

Here is Senor and his pumpkin.

And here is the spooky version of his.

Finally, here is my pumpkin with the others. Since mine didn't require a candle, it didn't make much sense to take a night photo of it.


We have a few more pictures up, now that we have a computer that is up and running.

Bean is practicing sitting up, and is getting better at it.

But, still a little hunched over.
